Murphs' kits.com center stand

I am searching for a center stand for my 2011 Wee and found www.murphkits.com. They have a center stand for 120.00 which includes shipping but wanted to hear from others who have this and if it's well constructed.

I ordered one because of price and it comes with no instructions and in pieces. So I shipped it back and bought an SW. As far as the quality it seemed as good as the SW, never did get it figured out ( all those pieces)

Murph's was excellant to work with on the return. Got my fork brace form them and a few other items.

You print the instructions off their website or you can read through them on your computer. Watch some installation videos and you may not even need the instructions.

One member received his murph c/s and it was missing parts and had rusted a another part. I would not count my nickels on such an important aftermarket add on. I went with the Hepco and Becker c/s ...perfect and never looked back.

Great Value

Just received my center stand from Murph. He was great to work with and answered my questions promptly.
The stand is well engineered and bolted up perfectly to my wee. It took all of about 20 minutes start to end.
BTW, the stand arrived without instructions which initially confused me. However, on the sheet included in the shipping it states to go to the web page and print the instructions. 1+ to Murph for decreasing paper waste! I just set my laptop on the workbench and followed the instructions. No problems!

Easy peasy

Just finished installing in my driveway. About 1:15 minutes from start to finish. Instructions on James' YouTube video were right-on and the "paracord" technique was awesome. Worked like a charm.

The next 10 minutes were spent cleaning and lubing the chain.

Next week, oil change...

I've had mine for nearly 3 years. It has performed flawlessly.

Mine bolted up and works fine. The only problem I have is the rubber bumper that installs to the bottom of the exhaust has split. Have to try and find another one.
